Grafting And Budding The Mulberry

What is the most approved manner of grafting mulberry trees? Am told

that they are very difficult to successfully graft.

Most propagators find the mulberry difficult by ordinary top and cleft

grafting methods. A flute or ring graft or bud does well on small

seedlings - that is, removing a ring or cylinder of the bark from the

stock and putting in its place a cylinder from the variety desired, cut

to fit accurately. For large trees this would have to be done on young

shoots forced out by cutting back the main branches, but when this is

done ordinary shield budding in these new shoots would give good

results. Cut back the trees now and bud in the new shoots in July or
